13 December 2014: BBHC Mens 3rd XI 5-1 Deal 2nd XI


After winning their two previous games the 3’s were looking for a hat-trick against bottom team Deal. BBHC immediately started on the front foot and took the game to Deal. In the early stages the 3’s were creating good opportunities but were finding the Deal keeper in top form. BBHC eventually took the lead when […]

13 Dec 2014: 2-0 doesn’t reflect the story (Men’s 4s)


Canterbury Squires 2-0 BBHC Men’s 4th XI For 65 minutes, BBHC’s development team (men’s 4s) put in a fantastic effort away at Canterbury on their slightly bouncy water-based astro. A PC awarded with minutes to go finally undid our hard work, and then a 2nd PC a moment later (which Canterbury tried to explain to […]

6 Dec 2014: Dan’s Tactics Revealed (Men’s 4s)


BBHC Men’s 4th XI 1-2 Burnt Ash 5th XI Billy the fish scored again, a run from somewhere near the halfway line, a bit like a runaway train – just like Dan put in his pre-match planning (see right). That goal equalised Burnt Ash’s PC a few minutes earlier. We had spells of passing the […]

29 Nov 2014: Sevenoaks 6th XI 3-6 BBHC Men’s 3rd XI


Arriving at Tonbridge School for an early start we found the Sevenoaks umpires sweeping the frost from the pitch to reveal the lines. When the game commenced it was the 3’s who were on top in the early exchanges, eventually taking the lead when Andy Humber struck from a narrow angle. Sevenoaks immediately responded winning […]

29 Nov 2014: BBHC Men’s 3rd XI 6-4 Gillingham Anchorians 3rd XI


With the 3’s in desperate need of a win to kick-start their season they welcomed 3rd placed Anchorians to Erith.

BBHC Men’s 1st XI 2-5 Brighton & Hove 2nd XI BBHC Men’s first team had a tough game at home to top of the table Brighton on Saturday.  BBHC had a different line up this week with a few old faces making an appearance as well as a debut for young Jake Rowney.  The game […]

22 Nov 2014: Sevenoaks 2s 5-2 BBHC Men’s 1st XI


BBHC made the relatively short journey to Holly Bush Lane to face Sevenoaks Men’s 2nd XI in dreary, rainy conditions for hockey. The B’s travelled with a depleted team and without a sub. The home side’s quick forwards ran their channels well and were supported by an able midfield but BBHC held firm. Sevenoaks eventually […]

22 Nov 2014: BBHC Ladies 3rd XI 3-2 Blackheath & OE Ladies 3rd XI


With some key players missing it was good to welcome back Katie Evans. BBHC had most of the play in the first half with some fine runs by Verity, Helen and Vicky Jones. A team effort resulted in a one nil lead at half time. Determined to extend the lead BBHC once again passed the […]

15 Nov 2014: Canterbury Millers 6-1 BBHC Mens 2nd XI

Billy the Fish

From the previous heights of the 2’s having too many players the previous week (15 at one point), a different exceedingly youthful side took the field rather early at Canterbury with several under 18s making their 2XI debut for the season. The pre match setup started very well apart from the few who decided they […]

15 Nov 2014: BBHC Mens 3rd XI 4-1 Holcombe 5a’s


The men’s 3’s took to the field knowing that nothing less than a win would be good enough against a Holcombe team occupying a similar position at the foot of the table. It was against the run of play that Holcombe opened the scoring, with their left wing ghosting in at the far post to […]
